Video created by Elizabeth Uva Employee on Apr 13, 2015

    In this one-hour webinar, Dr. Susan Nolan summarizes current research concerning:

    • The value of incorporating scientific thinking into introductory psychology courses.

    • Techniques that enhance student learning related to psychological science.

    • The importance of deploying active-learning exercises to the classroom.


    Susan Nolan will share a framework that helps students develop scientific and critical thinking, and will present examples of longer research modules that she embeds in her courses across the psychology curriculum - including introductory psychology. In addition, Susan will discuss how this research-focused approach aligns with the APA Guidelines for the Undergraduate Psychology major and builds on evidence-based, active-learning pedagogy.
